Network Speed Test

Postby Polka_Bravo_946 » Sun Sep 16, 2012 2:43 pm

is there some way of testing the bandwidth usage of ports on your router?

im anxiuos to do this since i live with 4 other poeple and we have an agreement of no downloading/uploading when people are at home but some times i just get such lag that its proves someone is breaking it. if i had some kind of software to back up mu suspicions it would be a great help.

try accessing the router control panel, simply type in your browser 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0, this should bring up a username panel, then the default username is admin, and the default password is admin. unless theyve been changed then you can monitor all the incoming and outgoing traffic on each ethernet port connected to the router

if you're on a shared router all the pc's connected to it will have a shared internal ip and each have an individual external ip, easiest way i found to track each pc in my house was to goto www.whatsmyip.com which will give you an internal and an external ip address, but if the other people sharing your connection are not willing to help you out polka im not too sure what you could do.

you meant shared external ip and individual internal ip

wireshark is a good network analyzer, but can be hard to understand..
And its gnu = free :)

np wookie!
try wireshark, polka, and tell what you think..
There is alot of possibilities, and can be very hard to understand..
I notised that if you monitor a port, the performance will be affected..

If someone knows an better prog. Write it down here!

how random is your laags, do you have them now to?
Cause, my computer did bluescreen (random or more often when i played bf3), and after that i viewed my logs (and peerguardian) and put in selected ipnumbers for blocking in my firewall.
Now i get some undeffined laags, not when i use internet webb, but random when i play, diablo3, bf3, MoH Wf, and they go for different server-ip.
So i have not blocked theirs ip..

i dont get lags anymore. as soon as i let everyone in the house know that i had downloaded software that could track the bandwidth usage, it mysteriously stoped.

I found this, but seems a little bit harsh..

During and after a DDoS attack, ask for help. Your regional CSIRT (Computer Security Incident Response Team) should be alerted, as they have expertise and contacts that can not only help you during the attack, but also start the process of figuring out who did it and how. A global list is available here: http://www.cert.org/csirts/national/contact.html
